Real estate companies are increasingly taking a comprehensive look at their environmental, social, and governance (ESG) practices. And they’re being presented with more and more ways to do so, from the building level up to the fund and portfolio levels.
ESG in commercial real estate has certainly evolved over the last decade, but several important questions remain. What is the best way to disclose ESG information as government regulations in Europe, New Zealand, and some U.S. cities and states begin to take effect? Is investment grade ESG data possible, and what will it take to achieve it? How will technology help companies track ESG metrics across massive building portfolios?
Matt Ellis, Founder and CEO of Measurabl, Jessica Elengical, head of corporate strategy and M&A at DWS addressed these questions and more at the 2020 CREtech Summit. Watch the full discussion below.
